A long weekend in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental while in Galveston for a wedding. The website description was accurate in regards to location, layout, amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. We made use of the two air mattresses and had 5 adults and 5 children sleeping comfortably. It is very close to the beach and the outside faucet was convenient for after the beach. The only thing lacking was a microwave, which would have been nice to have.

Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 4 nights over the Labor Day weekend, 2015. Everything about it was as advertised – the location, just blocks from many public beach access points, all of which had clean, very shallow-incline beach areas to choose from; the house layout, perfect for our group of five – two adults in the master bedroom, two daughters in the 1st guest room (with separate large beds) and one boyfriend solo in the 3rd bedroom, also with a solo bed; plus a very nice living room with flat screen TV and a large, comfortable kitchen with central island, plus all the expected amenities. Beautiful views from the three outside decks, esp. in the morning and at sunset, and lots of windows inside for tons of natural light during the day. The property was clean and well-groomed, lawn nicely mowed, thick grass (just bring repellent for the mosquitoes!). We spent lots of time at the beach, of course, but also some time in the E end of the island (older part of Galveston where the Seawall and most of the “action” is – bike rentals, fishing piers, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, tourist crowd, etc.). One afternoon my wife and I went shopping in the “Strand” area of old downtown Galveston, near the port of Galveston, on the bay, where the Carnival Magic cruise ship happened to be docked. It was huge! But it was always so nice to be able to return to this house and relax, have a meal, kick back and enjoy the comfort it afforded. Our time went by too quickly and we really hated to leave. Highly recommended.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was cute, clean, and exceeded our expectations! We'll definitely try to rent this house again if we vacation in the Galveston area in the future.

a real hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect. Quiet, impeccably clean, updated and just superb. Best to rent a cool little golf cart to get you to the beach -- this is fun and also gets you to the more quiet parts of the beach. We would come back here in a heartbeat. Affordable, great communication with owner, lovely plants in the yard, great decorating taste. A well-appointed beach home, as it were!

We don't do this often so it was a special treat for us. And this house made it absolutely special. Thank you so much!

I was very impressed with the size and cleanliness

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family and this home accommodated all of us with room to spare. I was most impressed with the cleanliness of a rental home this big! I used a black-light inspection and could not believe how spotless it was. If space to relax and a clean place to do it is important to you, then THIS is where you want to be. There are decks on 2-sides of the house to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. Communication with owners was fast and friendly. There is only one shower, but the jacuzzi tub in master makes up for that. It does have 2 bathrooms and was not a problem even for our large family. Water pressure was not great and if I had anything to say negative that would be it. Beds were very comfortable.

About the location. It's about a 1/2 mile to the beach. A swimming pool and park is within walking distance. Location is about 20 minutes from Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens. The Pleasure pier is great fun too with Thursday Live band show in summer. It's $25 for an all-day pass for rides. I hope this review helps you make an informed choice.

Fantastic for young families!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with four children under age 4 between us, and this was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway together. There's plenty of space to spread out, and the walk-in-closet in the master bedroom is big enough to be considered an additional room. We put our infant's pack-n-play in there, and he slept better than he ever does at home. It's a quick drive to the beach, and a two-block walk to the pool/playground, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The house is well-maintained and clean, and the Bramwells were responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We'll definitely consider going back to this house on our next trip to Galveston.
